Roller Compacted Concrete

Standard General manufactures and places roller compacted concrete (RCC), which is used for specialized industrial and heavy duty paving. RCC has the same characteristics of traditional concrete but is compacted by traditional paving rollers. This makes RCC very strong and durable. RCC  has no joints and does not require hand finishing or steel reinforcing. The high strength of roller compacted concrete reduces rutting, does not deform under heavy loads, is resistant to spills and temperature changes. RCC is the efficient and economical choice for heavy duty surface construction.

Cement Stabilized Subgrade

Where existing soil conditions are not favourable, we also can use various stabilization and strengthening processes by adding soil cement to enhance the soil to provide a stable and secure base for construction. Soil Cement Stabilization mixes Portland cement into the existing soil increasing the soil’s strength and reducing the base water holding capacity. Soil Stabilization has many advantages eliminating the expense of excavating unsuitable soils, importing replacement materials, reducing the overall construction duration and strengthening the soil.

LEED® credit contribution

Standard General can contribute to LEED credits through many of our products and services. Some of the credits we can assist you achieve include: Heat Island Effect, Construction Waste Management, Resources Reuse, Recycled content, Regional Materials, Innovation and Design and Regional Priorities.
